To The Editor, Last night (6/5/17) the Board of Selectmen voted unanimously to decline an appeal to overturn the 2017 Spring Town Meeting vote on Article 17: Placement of ‘All Are Welcome’ stones at up to eight of the roads into our town. Last night’s event is important; less for what it did,...
Dear Editor, Last week’s editorial where the editor applies his spin to the failure of question 2 at town election overlooks some important distinctions and reveals one of the underlying reasons the question was defeated, i.e. confusion. Question 2 was not asking voter approval of a $5 - $6 million...
To The Editor, On at least three different recent occasions I have been quoted by the Groton Herald in regards to my position of the senior center relocating to the Prescott School. As the Director of the Council on Aging my chief responsibility is to advocate for the needs of Groton’s seniors,...
Dear Editor, It seems the old adage: “How do I love thee? Let me count the ways . . .” is alive and well in Groton. With boulders placed here, there and everywhere proclaiming ‘All Are Welcome.’ But now some are saying, “This is too dangerous to put on a stone.” How about the murderers, rapists,...
Dear Editor, It was sad, last night at the Selectmen’s Meeting during the discussion of the “All are Welcome” markers, to hear Stuart Schulman apologizing for the Founder’s use of the generic “men” in the Declaration of Independence: “We hold these Truths to be self-evident, that all Men are...
Dear Editor, Groton one-year-old Kailyn Bennett’s mom describes her as “the happiest child you will ever meet” – she loves music, balloons, lights, and water. Kailyn radiates joy and wonder, despite the fact that she has spent much of her life in the hospital facing two rare life threatening...
Dear Editor, A few weeks ago, J. Schorn wrote a Letter to the Editor stating “Shame on You” to all of us who voted against the debt exclusion override for the Senior Center design money. I didn’t vote against this override because I am against seniors and I didn’t vote no because I don’t want my...
To The Editor, This letter is in response to recent remarks both at Selectmen’s meetings and in letters to the editor regarding an unfounded link between Indivisible Groton Area and the initiative to place All Are Welcome markers at the town borders. At our last group meeting, we had a remarkably...
To the Editor: As residents of Groton we register strong opposition to placing “Groton – All Are Welcome – Town Meeting 2017” stone markers at the various eight major road entrances to the Town of Groton. The motion was passed by a majority vote of 140/113 at the May 1, 2017 Town Meeting following...
To The Editor, Having spent several years on the school committee, I learned very quickly that the bottom line to my job was service to our children. THE CHILDREN WERE THE BOTTOM LINE. I’d like to transfer that philosophy and ask this question: What might be the bottom line for our Town Fathers,...
